How do I apply for a grant?
The best avenue to obtain a grant is by applying for an Alberta Foundations for the Arts Grant through their Art and Education grants found on their website.
Clay for Kids is on the arts roster for visual arts.
How far in advance do we need to start planning?
The earlier the better; we recommend getting started the school year before your desired timeframe. This gives all parties ample time to prepare. The grant writing and approval process can be lengthy and planning in advance also gives you a better chance at locking down the best date. Grants are accepted by April 2 of each new year. When accepted the work can begin the following school year.
How many classes can Clay for Kids work with in one day?
Generally, we prefer to work with four to six classes a day.
Which age groups or grade levels can Clay for Kids work with?
Any and all; Kindergarten to High School.
How big of a school is too big?
No school is too large. We have accommodated schools with populations over eight hundred. Larger programs will generally take an additional week for each workshop.
What finishes can we choose?
We offer two styles of murals – one is finished in an acrylic paint finish with clear high gloss varnish painted on to protect the tiles. This mural is for indoors only. Costs start at $16.00 per tile( depending on complexity of design), or shape.
The second is finished with a slip glaze high gloss finish. Each tile is designed and made by the students and then immediately slip glazed with a liquid clay base paint. The tiles are dried, fired and dipped in clear glaze to a hard shiny finish. Cost is $18 per tile depending on complexity of design.
